  • 1/2 cup butter , softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup caramel (store bought or homemade)
  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, mix together the butter and sugar until creamy.
  • Reduce speed to low and add the flour, cornstarch and salt. Mix until well blended.
  • Line a 9 x 9 inch pan with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray. Press dough onto bottom of baking pan. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until lightly golden.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Pour caramel over the top of the shortbread. Set it aside to firm up just a little.
  • Meanwhile, pour the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high heat for 1 minute, stirring every 20 seconds, or until melted and smooth.
  • Let the melted chocolate sit for 5 minutes, then spread over the top caramel layer.
  • Place the pan in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the candy from the pan by lifting the foil lining straight up. Place the candy on a cutting board, and using a hot knive, slice into 12 equal pieces.
  • Store in refrigerator for up to 3 days. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes prior to serving.
